There is a very long history with BumGenius and Baba Me, we introduced the American cloth diaper brand made by Cotton Babies to Europe in Feb 2006 and have witnessed their huge growth since then. Theur first pocket nappy in Europe was put on our youngest child's bum when he was just 1 day old. That same diaper fit his older 2-year-old brother with no need for a separate large size and we knew a revolution in the cloth nappy industry was taking place!
These nappies are just about the best cloth nappy on the market, ensuring reliability and ease of use are their core principles. After changing the cloth nappy market once, they did it again when they introduced their flip nappies, a fantastic two-piece pad type system with a waterproof cover (which we were part of the development process of and even got the honour of naming the nappy!). The flip potty training pants are amazing and will last up to 50lbs, suiting many children who really struggle to potty train. They also have newborn diapers, called littles which will suit newborn babies from 5lbs. All of their nappies have snap closures now, having discontinued their hook and loop (velcro) options, as it is not as durable as snaps, and their patented stretchy tabs will ensure they provide the perfect fit on your baby.
It's no surprise to anyone who uses cloth nappies that they have a ton of worldwide patents under their belt, which quite simply make them so reliable and so good. There is also a wide selection to suit every choice, budget and requirement. From the top of the range Elemental AIO (all in one nappy), which has thirsty organic cotton at its core, to the most popular one-size pocket nappy which comes with microfiber inserts.
Their Organic Cotton Washable wipes, much more effective and kinder to the skin and the environment than disposable wipes. The Elemental nappy, super absorbent with 6 layers of organic cotton, trim on your baby and one size fits from birth to potty. The Freetime is a best seller, it's a very simple cloth nappy to use. No prep, quick drying and very absorbent.
Fill out our nappy questionnaire if you would like tailored advice on which nappies would suit your needs. Everyone one of our staff have used cloth nappies and are highly trained and can get a tailored solution for you. If you are worried about the extra work involved with using real nappies, modern day machines make the laundry aspect quite easy and you can tumble dry bumGenius. Nappy rash will not increase with real nappy usage, and you can use most nappy rash cream on your nappies as long as they do not contain zinc oxide, and use paper liners to protect the fabric from the cream. When going out and about you can put your soiled nappies in reusable nappy bags. So ditch the disposable diapers now and start building your washable nappy stash!

When it comes to Cloth Nappies, the brand bumGenius is just about the best there is! Jennifer Labit, the owner of Cotton Babies, revolutionised the cloth nappy market when she launched the first onesize pocket nappy on the market. The bumGenius Freetime soon followed, as just about the quickest drying all in one cloth nappy on the market, the stay dry layer included keeping your baby's bum super dry! BumGenius Littles are their newborn nappies and they revamped them in 2018. They launched the birth to potty real nappy system, and continue each year to innovate and bring the reusable nappy market forward. Use their nappy bags instead of a nappy bucket to store dirty nappies.
